Tomb Raider: Underworld (2008)

Lara comes to believe that her mother might still be alive in some kind of afterlife and has to sort through common mythology to find the truth of where the afterlife might be.

9/10

A fun, satisfying (if you don’t use a walkthrough), good-looking adventure which again places the emphasis on traversal and environmental puzzles over easy but nice looking and enjoyable action. This is easy to play, nice to look at and a joy from start to finish. Checkpointing is generous, removing all frustration and allowing you to concentrate on the task at hand. The story is agreeably non-sensical mythical tosh but once more highlights legends from history (Norse, this time) that you may be motivated into researching and that’s a genuine bonus from a game.

This game contains mild swear words, Gun and fantasy violence

Classified 12 by BBFC. Suitable only for persons of 12 years and over.
